Brand-New Season of the Ultimate Music Showdown Competition Series for Kids to Feature Returning Host Nick Cannon and Show Sidekick JoJo Siwa

NEW YORK -- Nickelodeon today announced it has renewed its hit competition series Lip Sync Battle Shorties for a second season with 10 half-hour episodes.

Each performance comes straight from the participants' imagination, allowing them to personalize all creative elements from song and costume selection to epic dance moves and eccentric themes.
